More curvaceous than Jessica Rabbit

For the last two years, we’ve had the honour of making a bespoke knife as a prize for each of the winners of The Craft Guild of Chefs National Chef of the Year and the Young National Chef of the Year.

National Chef of the Year 2019 winner Steve Groves, Head Chef at Roux at Parliament Square tasked us with the job of designing him his perfect boning knife – a challenge we were delighted to accept.

From initial sketches made during conversations with Steve, it became apparent that Steve was looking for a knife with a very pronounced upwards curve to the blade, tapering to a fine point. The handle needed to be shaped to be comfortable being held in a wide variety of grips.

To ensure the design of the blade was spot on, we began by making an acrylic mockup of the knife for Steve to play with to ensure we’d captured the angle correctly. From there we then made Steve a fully functioning steel prototype to put to test in his kitchen.

Only when we were absolutely satisfied that the design was spot on did we then move on to making Steve’s finished knife – the Roux.

This ready made version has a highly durable red Richlite handle with a triple red, white, red liner for an eye-catching pop of added pizazz. Sure to make fiddly butchery tasks whizz by.

Complimentary blade engraving included. 

As with every Savernake, our namesake features our trademark concave blade, expertly blended into a tapering convex cutting edge. The blade’s concavity allows the knife to have both a sturdy spine and a cutting edge best measured in microns. It also removes excess weight and encumbrance from the side of the blade and is – in short – the business.

  • "Outstanding" sharpness and edge durability
  • Curved blade tapers to a fine point for detailed boning work
